Tone Chaser? Plug Into This Blackstar All-Tube Combo Amp

If you want a sleek-looking amp with boatloads of tone, then the Blackstar HT Stage 60 guitar combo amplifier is your final stop for rock. This monster of an amp features one clean and two overdrive channels, bass and treble EQ controls for your clean channel, three-band EQ controls for your overdrive channels, two ECC83, one ECC82, and two EL34 tubes, two 12" Celestion speakers, voice switching for all three channels, master presence, resonance, and volume controls, onboard digital reverb with a bright/dark switch, and Blackstar's patent-applied-for Infinite Shape Feature (ISF).

Three Channels of All-Tube Tone

The Blackstar HT Stage 60 boasts three separate channels with lots of room for crafting your particular tone. Your clean channel projects a well-articulated sound full of body and presence. Your OD1 brings in a serious load of crunch to your signal, and your OD2 pushes things even further for those heart-stopping wails and head-spinning licks. The included four-way footswitch allows for easy and seamless switching between any of your channels. With the HT Stage 60, you won't run out of amp any time soon!

Independent EQ for Clean and OD Channels

This Blackstar combo amp gives you a nice set of independent EQ controls on each channel. Your clean channel features treble and bass EQ controls, and your OD1 and OD2 channels give your bass, middle, and treble control knobs to hone in on your preferred sound. Your clean channel also offers a voice switch that allows you to change between British Class A and a US dynamic clean setting.

Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)

Both your OD1 and OD2 channels boast Blackstar's awesome Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). This sweet control allows you to dial in the appropriate blend between a British tone and a more American contour. Set your dial right in the middle for a perfect 50/50 blend of each tone. Play around and see which sound makes the most sense for your specific style.

Onboard Reverb and Effects Loop Level Control

To add some final sonic flair to your sound, the Blackstar HT Stage 60 offers onboard digital reverb. Hit the reverb's bright/dark switch to get whatever color you're aiming for. Your external effects loop also has a level control, so you can set just the right balance in one simple turn.

4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Combo Amp"
Overall: I was in the market for a two speaker combo amp, either tube or hybrid. I play metal but I am sick of hauling around half stacks. I've never played an arena in my life, so there is really no need for lugging that much stuff around. I saw that ZZounds had a refurbed model of the Blackstar HT-60. After some research and reading reviews, I figured it would be a good investment, especially with the hundred bucks off from being a refurb. I received the amp in INCREDIBLY good condition. I couldn't even believe that it had so much money taken off of it for a unit that was in such pristine condition. I noticed a small little ding on the very back of the amp, but that was it. The EQ is marvelously powerful. Even with the bass cranked all the way up, it never gets muddy or swamped out. The ISF knob is a very unique feature, and while its probably not as powerful as Blackstar would like you to think, it adds a unique dynamic to the EQ. Built in reverb is OK. The range in which it sounds "good" is very limited, but the option of having a Light / Dark reverb switch on the back is nice. The cleans sound absolutely breath taking, and the Voice switch for each channel really changes up the tone dramatically. Very nice feature to have. My only issue with OD2 is there is a lot of hiss / feedback, even at mild gain / volume levels. Overall, I will probably not need another combo amp as long as I'm a musician. This is a purchase that will (hopefully) last me a life time. Some have said they recommend changing out the tubes. I don't think its necessary, but that is just me. If anything, I would probably get a noise suppressor for the OD2 channel, and maybe an outboard reverb / delay / chorus to beef up the cleans, but THAT IS IT. The distortion on this unit is incredible, and there is a huge, huge dynamic range you can capture on this amp. I would highly recommend it for blues, rock, jazz, and metal musicians. Metal artists might get bugged by the hissy OD2 channel, but the Clean / OD1 channels will leave blues / rock / jazz musicians jaws on the floor. Really superb sounds come out of this amp. I would highly recommend it. Looking forward to more gigs with it! DID NOT USE MANUFACTURER SUPPORT. WOULD LOVE TO HAVE AN "N/A" OPTION FOR THAT RATING SYSTEM. NOT EXACTLY FAIR THAT I HAVE TO RATE IT.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "All I'll ever need! It quite simply rules! "
Overall: Finally after years and thousands of dollars spent on multiple tube amp heads and speaker cabinet combinations, I have found my perfect all in one amplifier that covers all tonal spectrums, and doesn't have a weak channel or setting at all. Every dial adjustment, every voicing, for every channel actually changes your tone and oh boy what tones the HT Stage 60 can dial in, it's magnificent! The clean channel rings and sings like angels and has amazing headroom and clarity ala Fender Twin in one amp voice and then you can change the voicing to make it break up ala Vox AC30 with a push of a button, so it's an incredibly versatile and beautiful sounding clean channel and totally boutique quality. Now the goodness of the OD channels, OD 1 is classically voiced and has the vintage Marshall sound nailed to a tee, think Appetite for Destruction sounding crunch tones that are sparkling clear with perfect definition. The other voicing for OD 1 is fantastic as well and has a more modern/American tonality like an older pre rectifier era Mesa Boogie, but that's just the beginning because OD 2 is absolutely insane with it's ferocity and is now my favorite high gain tone EVER. I've been a 5150 Mark 1 advocate for almost 20 years, along with Boogies, Bogners, Carvins, Marshall, and most recently an EVH 5150iii user and I've taken my EVH 2x12 cab that pushed sound for the EVH head and have used the Blackstar's speaker output to push the cab in unison with the amp's Celestion speakers and have found my ultimate tone! Blackstar mean it with their tagline of "the sound in your head" because you will find it! The ISF tone stack shaping actually works and you can either go to the extreme left of the dial and get a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier/Mark VI sound that just kills, and is where I have it, or to the extreme right for a spot on Marshall JCM800 tone, (a good portion of the Blackstar founders are former Marshall employees), that screams like a murder victim, or find what you like in between, and even a tiny adjustment changes things, this amp rules! It comes with a great 4 button footswitch that also controls the onboard reverb, that also works and performs amazingly well, so well in fact the only pedal I've ran into this amp so far is a Boss NS-2 to tame the savagery of OD 2, and I also don't have to crank the gain or channel volume to get "tear the universe in half" sustain and distortion, all one needs to do is push the master a toonce and let the warm gooey tubes sing, no BS digital, hissy, artificial sounding modeling, just a solid, satisfying, real, proper, tube amp! I LOVE this combo and I'm with these guys for the long haul! It's also very well constructed and has ingenious handles on the sides of the amp that really help in transporting, it's a 10!!!
